Advisor: Mr. Nicolò Doglioni, Geologist Project Description:
The administration of the Italian railways required a check of the existing protection system in order to verify their efficiency and the risk analysis of the actual situation over an area 10 Km2. To accomplish the task during the first phase, it has been developed a new cataloging method allowing to resume each punctual situation of rock falling risk on user-friendly sheet provided with photographs and technical information. In a further phase, the analysis of the results obtained by numerical rockfall simulation (RocFall inc.), has allowed to create the hazard map of the area..
